  • A lot of people got killed, injured, wounded.
  • Hospitals  became places of healing rather than places to go die, as hey were widely considered before the war. Hospitals were horrible places they were dirty and full of diseases.
  • Because there weren't any antibiotics to help cure infections, the only real treatment for wounds was amputation.
  • Around 75% of the people survived the operation. Of the 620,000 soldiers who died during the Civil War, around 400,000 of them died from disease and not from fighting
